Spotlight: Klaussner



Klaussner Home Furnishings celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year by continuing to be a standard in the industry. Established in 1963 by Stuart Lane as Stuart Furniture, the company quickly expanded from its humble beginnings. By 1972 they had moved operations to a bigger plant, and in 1979 were purchased by Hans Klaussner. Things moved quickly from there, with the further acquisition of Prestige Fabrications in 1988. A distribution center opened in 1993 and the company, along with its new affiliate Prestige, continued to grow over the next decade. After celebrating forty years in the business in 2003, the Klaussner brand was launched in 2009, followed quickly by the Erwo bedding line in 2010. A new showroom was completed at High Point in 2011, showcasing the hard work and high quality that goes into every Klaussner product.  

Klaussner is a homegrown, made-in-the-USA success story, and remains committed to staying that way. In 2011 the company was approved as a Foreign Trade Zone manufacturer by the US Commerce Dept., allowing them to be more competitive overseas. Even more importantly, the newly relaxed import duties on fabric mean that furniture can continue to be cost-effectively manufactured domestically, which helps in the hiring and maintenance of US jobs. The frames and cushions on Klaussner furniture are made right in their North Carolina factories, which also allows custom-made items to be manufactured and shipped within 21 days. Klaussner employs nearly 2,000 workers, all dedicated to their craft.  When you purchase a home theater seat from Klaussner, you can be assured it is crafted with the same high standard as all Klaussner items.
Klaussner is wholly committed to the highest-quality furniture at an amazing value. Having the frames and cushioning crafted at their very own plants by skilled US laborers, is just the beginning. Sophisticated 3D-drafting software is used to design each frame, allowing a complete picture of the item to be conceived before it hits the plant. The materials are then precision-cut using CNC routers. Seat springs are composed of 8 ½“ gauge-tempered steel, which are then attached using insulated spring clips to prevent squeaking. Springs are also attached edge-to-edge, so that the seating is even and firm. Finally, all frame edges are padded for a lush, comfortable finish which provides further support.

As with the frames, all Klaussner cushions are fashioned at their North Carolina factories. They use a soy-based foam, which reduces the amount of petroleum for a sustainable, green imprint. The outside of the cushion has a bonded polyester wrap which delivers both comfort and support. The care with which each individual frame and cushion is made, is a defining hallmark of the Klaussner assurance to excellence.

It’s been fifty years, but Klaussner is just getting started. The launch of the Klaussner brand in 2007 means that new, exciting designs will be continually added to their already-rich inventory. With over 500 styles, 600 fabric choices, and 75 leather choices available, all sizes, tastes and preferences are accommodated.  4seating.com is committed to offering only the highest level of top-quality furniture on the market, and Klaussner has proven to be a solid-gold standard.
